SiCkPuPPy's TRX-4 with a Hummer H1-body.
 
Hello guys and gals :)

I'm new to the forum and also new to crawling.
But since I bought a trx-4 second hand some time ago I've fallen for this hobby.

First let me get the info on the trx-4.

Chassis - Stock TRX-4
Body - Modded from stock to crew-cab (more to come)
Motor - Castle Creation 2280kv slate 1900 brushless sensor motor
Batteries - Traxxas 3cell LiPo 4000MAH
ESC - Mamba X
BEC - Castle
Winch - 10V Warner
Steering servo - Savox SV-1270TG running @ 7.4V
Aluminium steering arm
Drive train - Stock axles but ned axle housings from TFL.(pictures to come later on).

I'm going to use the first post as a "post it", meaning that I'll put some links and reminders for myself in here..:

Lets take a look at how it looked like when I bought it:

And here's my first mod.. The license plate ;) It's my initials and my day of birth.. Thought it could be cool :)

Since this ride I've pulled the whole car apart.. The body is painted, some windows has gotten "cleared out", and I'm working on modifying the body quite a bit.. Also got the big light kit but haven't mounted it yet.
Yeah, and the most important update is that during christmas I fitted the TFL aluminium axle housing. I just love the look of those and are really looking forward to give them a real beating :)

I've also made a couple newbie youtube-clips of the trx-4.. :)

This one is from my first run with it, I crawled a bit on some fire ruins behind my house..

In this one I got out on a trail having some fun on my own..

Just another film.. :)

And here you can see the reason why I suddenly decided to rip apart the trx and redo some of it..

I know I could've just refitted the things that have fallen off during my runs, but I want it to be MINE build, so now I'm going for a new look.. :)

I got these exploded drawings from TFL today, I did miss some documentation on the axle housings when they arrived, but now there is finally some documentation on them :)

It's getting closer to driveable.. Reeeally looking forward to get it out again soon!
It's not gonna happen this weekend, since there is birthdays to celebrate and stuff like that.
But maybe the next one? Thats the goal!

Re: sickpuppys TRX-4's life up north..
 
I didn't get to drive it today, partly because it's still -22 celsius outside, but also because when I'm home from work it's allready dark outside.. Hoping for better temperatures for the weekend. :)
But I did take a few pictures outside today, I think it looks better in natural light than indoor.. Agree?

I'm pretty happy about the roof rack-idea on the back wall of the cab :D

Really nicely done, my man!

Diff covers, front bumper, lights, cage around back window and the tube around the bed area - all those definitely stand out...

Perfect wheel/tire size for the TRX-4, IMHO.

Thank you very much for kind words. Really appreciate it!

Allthough I have to arrest you [emoji6]
It's not diff covers, it's complete axlehousings with diff house, portal housings, c-joints and axle house, all made of aluminium

As I was re-reading from the beginning, I saw that - my apologies, sir!

Great looking rig sickpuppy. Love the pictures. Its very easy to start getting carried away with this hobby for sure. Looks like your off to a really good start into our hobby, welcome aboard.

Those TFL axle housings are attractive and I have looked at them on ebay but I just can't justify the cost.

I got pretty darn excited myself when that idea got to me. I'm happy with the look of it :)

Yeah, those were one of the first buys on eBay after getting the car home. I just HAD to have them..
Allthough, I had to "man up" a few weeks before I dared to do the job with changing to them. But hey, now I know how to do that too :)

Thanks alot for kind words, Levi :)
Yeah, I'm pretty easy to get caught up in things like this. Allthough I've had a couple RC's before (Savage XL and Vorza), none of them has made an impact the same way as the trx have done. :)
So now I got lots of differens wheels and tires, I got more spares than I'll ever need, I receive boxes from all around the world on almost daily basis.. So I should've been parted from my eBay-account for some time.. :D
But I really love the trx-4 and I hope that's an affair that will last several years :)

Hi, about my trx4 I feel the same way, after I bought it, for over 2 months, I got a new package almost every day as I always found some thing to add to my truck. I cannot say how much I love this truck.[emoji41][emoji16][emoji76]
